We are 2 middle aged women planning a trip to India in October/November 2017. WE are hoping to hire a car and driver for parts of our trip. We would appreciate any suggestions/recommendations for the following sections of the trip :- Udaipur to Pushkar
Pushkar to Jaipur

Agra to Delhi.
Does anyone have any advice or a rough idea of price / times for getting a suit made in Delhi? Can you get contemporary western styles?
Im going to passing through Delhi and Hong Kong. I would guess that Delhi will the cheaper option to pick up a suit?
Any recommendations for trek in Leh? Looking for approximately 5/6 day duration in organized group. Any recommended tour operators? Heading there last 2 weeks in June, any experience of weather/temperature then? Also all recommendations of towns/villages to visit gratefully received!
I spent 3 months in India/Nepal last year (inc Sikkim and Annapurna) but it was winter so couldn't get to Leh by road, devastated! So this time I've convinced a couple of mates to come with me to Leh for 6 days as part of a 2 week trip (better than nothing!). Now I need to deliver on fun times.

A few questions:
- Is Vrindavan a lovely place to stay for a long time, or will 3 days or so be enough?
- Is there an established traveller/backpacker area of the town?
- Is there an easy way to travel Vrindavan-Rishikesh, or should I return to Delhi and go from there?
I am looking for some rural villages where I can photograph within an hour of Mysore. Interested in people, markets strong Hindu culture, rural life, craftsman. This is my 13th trip to India. Will be there in mid -June. Not looking for another poor town, need something with visual flavor. Thanks
I'm planning my trip to India for 2018 and I would like to visit the city of Nagaur from Jaisalmer. So, my question is: is it posible to travel between both cities by bus?
Fron Naguar, could I take a bus to go to either Jaipur or Bikaner?
